These 2 photos are from today, waiting for the eye doc. Jackson's eyes look good overall. His right eye is a bit irritated, so he gave us a RX for eye drops. Jack hates eye drops, you should have seen his face drop when the doctor said the word "eye drops". He went from a happy little boy to a look of confusion, like "why would you do this to me again?"! The doc also says he is far sighted still, but his vision is probably like 20/30 - so unless he starts to cross again, he shouldn't even need glasses. Good news! Next visit is 3 months from now.
Last week, I had to go out of town on business so Nana and Papa came down to visit. They drove down in a terrible storm to get here on Sunday night because I had to be at the airport at 5am on Monday. It was a good idea, because Jackson had his eye surgery the Friday before and he wasn't feeling completely back to normal yet - and he needed eye drops 4 times a day. They brought him down a new BBQ grill that actually makes a noise like it is cooking. Nana also made him a quilt. Apparently, he thought it was odd that there was holes in it (it is an afghan), but he loves it just the same. It is especially fun to poke fingers through :)
My Grandmother is coming to visit in October. She and her husband will make a long weekend trip. She was born in 1929, so its a pretty long trip for them. If you are the praying type, say a prayer for them to have safe travel. Jack will enjoy their visit too.
We are also trying to plan a long weekend in the next couple months to take a little family vacation. We were hoping to go to Disney but it isn't going to happen this year (maybe Spring?). I think we will do Busch Gardens. We haven't been on a trip as a family (of 3) since we went to Great Wolf Lodge in July 2010. Now to look for some bargins!!!
